If you are ordering MREs after a disaster, good luck. Supplies ALWAYS VAPORIZE just after a crisis strikes. After Hurricane Katrina (August 2005), two major companies (a major TV Station and a major overnight freight company) came in and PURCHASED EVERY MRE WE HAD within hours of the disaster.
Remember, when the Hurricane, Tornado, Earthquake or Disaster warnings go out (or hit), the time to prepare is over, like trying to buy fire insurance when the house is on fire.
As we have recommended for years, IT'S BETTER TO BE PREPARED WAY TOO EARLY, than just one minute too late. Now is the time to GET PREPARED! Order sufficient for your current and future needs NOW!
